But will it shred... A Blendtec blender?
This came up when I searched for a Blendtec blending itself.
Edit: following cartoon in no way represents any of my personal views.


Edit: this is what I was looking for.

At the NIST museum in Gaithersburg, MD, the commissary serves only Standard Reference Foods.

I thought that was a shot from your pantry.

You can also buy the Standard Reference Peanut Butter directly from NIST for only $761 for three six ounce jars: https://www-s.nist.gov/srmors/view_detail.cfm?srm=2387


(Breakfast cereal is somewhat more costly, at $591 for 60 grams, while eggs tip the scale at $960 for 50 grams.)

The coffee, I'm told, is quite good. Complex to make, though:

That Satanist guy seems like a poorly done rip-off of "Heroin Bob" from SLC Punk.

Transformers you say?

A picture of my bike next to one of our Dynapower fan cooled transformers(30' in the air).

Interesting... What are those used for?



This is the largest transformer I've ever personally come into contact with:


(picture is not of me, I visited this site 11 years ago while building some new studios for the station.)

That's one of two modulation transformers used by the 500,000 watt AM transmitter at WLW in Cincinnati, the highest-power broadcast radio station ever constructed in the western hemisphere. Built in the early 1930s, it's no longer in use. Each one weighed 35,000 lbs and still contains 725 gallons of PCB oil. The rest of the transmitter was massive beyond description. Rather than being constructed inside a metal box as is the custom today, it simply consumes nearly all of the two story building which houses it. The building itself is the transmitter cabinet:


(note the "Danger: High RF Radiation" sign at the front door. When you walk through that door, you are inside the transmitter.)



Back in those days, AM radio was modulated by amplifying audio signal up to about half of total transmitter power and feeding it into the primary of the modulation transformer. The secondary of the transformer was wired in series with the high-voltage power supply to the plate of the final output tube(s), the grid(s) of which were driven with the RF carrier frequency at full saturation.

They basically just smashed the two signals together and hoped for the best. Surprisingly, it usually worked. When it didn't, the transformer would sometimes explode.

Needless to day, this technique is no longer used.

Ours are dry iron core units and still weigh 20,000lbs. These are taking 13200 line voltage and converting it down into 480 for our process line. One of them powers our 3 chillers and MCC, while the other one powers our 5 rectifiers.
8000a 60v DC glycol cooled rectifier taken apart for maintenance:



This is the smaller of the 5 we have, it's only 60v instead of the bigger 80v.

8,000 amps at 60 VDC? That must be a hell of a rectifier stack.

I assume you guys are either welding submarines together, or running some kind of massive plating tank.

We are one of a handful of places with hardcoat tanks as big as we do in the country.
If you walk across the bussing when she's running full tilt it will spin a wrench in your hand.
